We Can Improve Productivity and Secure Our Jobs

Here's How

All Americans deserve first-rate performance from our government and its workers. As government workers and taxpayers, we believe in a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people."

In the current political stampede to cut costs and budgets and reduce deficits, many decision-makers overlook opportunities to increase efficiency and productivity that will give taxpayers improved return on investment for their tax dollars. As federal workers we believe that improved productivity is an investment in job security and a patriotic alternative to cutting vital government services.

We also know our jobs and the processes involved in getting work done. Labor-Management partnership, as it has been established between the Metal Trades and NAVSEA, can improve productivity and efficiency and secure our jobs.

In 2011, the Metal Trades has pledged to work with NAVSEA to add one more hour of productive time “on the deck plates.” That goal applies to all union-represented workers within the command.

We’re Calling All Members

Give us your observations and suggestions for ways to increase productivity. Please take a few moments to fill out this survey.
